About This Class

You've been taking breaks since before you knew how to. This course is about empowering you with a better understanding of how you learn, why you need breaks, and what makes for a productive study break. We go through some insights from scientific psychology to help you take control of your breaks!

“I don't need to learn how to take breaks,” you sigh. “I need to know how to stay engaged with my work!”  

Staying engaged for the long haul is the whole trick to being an effective learner. There are lots of factors that go into this: passion, curiosity, discipline…. And pacing yourself. With breaks. 

Our brains are not designed to engage in endless hours of sustained concentration. We are designed to be good at bursts of concentration, peppered with lots of breaks. And if you don't plan your study strategy accordingly, you will burn out. You need to be proactive in order to win this game. 

Understanding the psychology of learning that can help you harness your learning abilities. I have worked one-on-one with dozens of students to help them get through the painful parts of the learning curve, including students with learning difficulties like dyslexia and ADHD. I know a lot about the challenges you are facing when you have big learning goals. 

If you have trouble sticking to a study program because you get tired or turned off, check out the material in this course.  

This course is about getting to the point where you can learn more, faster. This course does that by focusing on helping you improve one vital piece of study hygiene: study breaks. 

Students who will benefit the most are those who:  

1)      Find that despite their passion for lessons, they lose the motivation to continue;  

2)      Have trouble managing their study breaks (i.e., they run too long)  

This course can help you smooth out the rough edges to your learning curve. Check it out to see if it’s right for you.

You have access to the materials and to me, for any questions. You get access to my expertise if you have any questions or are dealing with an issue that isn't addressed in the course.  

As always, you have a 30 day no questions asked money back guarantee, so if you are not 100% satisfied, Udemy will refund you the full cost of the course.  

The course runs about 1 hour long, and  I’ve packed it with usable nuggets of psychological wisdom, and kept up a brisk pace. I know your time is valuable.
